Water Fluoridation Reporting System Annual Data

$79 / year

This dataset comprises of Water Fluoridation Statistics which is an annual report of the percentage and number of people receiving fluoridated water from 2012 through 2016.

Complexity

This dataset is provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Oral Health. National Oral Health Surveillance System (NOHSS) is a collaborative effort between CDC’s Division of Oral Health and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD).

Monitoring health status and access to preventive interventions and evaluating quality of population-based health services are among the 10 essential public health services. National- and state-based surveys monitor the oral health status of the U.S. population and the Water Fluoridation Reporting System (WFRS) compiles data useful for monitoring access to and evaluating the quality of water fluoridation programs at the state and water system levels. WFRS data have been summarized every two years since 2000, and these summary reports provide estimates for tracking the Healthy People 2010 objective: Increase the proportion of the U.S. population served by community water systems with optimally fluoridated water.

The number of communities and people who benefit from water fluoridation is continuing to grow. This effective public health intervention was initiated in the United States in 1945. In 2014, 74.4% of the U.S. population on public water systems, or a total of 211,393,167 people, had access to fluoridated water.

CDC monitors the progress of the nation and individual states toward meeting the Healthy People 2020 objective on community water fluoridation — that 79.6% of people on public water systems will receive water that has the optimum level of fluoride recommended for preventing tooth decay.

Oral Health Data includes the following indicators of water fluoridation from the Water Fluoridation Report:
– Percentage of the population served by public water systems who receive fluoridated water. This indicator also is part of the following sets of indicators or objectives:
– National Oral Health Surveillance System
– Chronic Disease Indicators
– Healthy People 2020
